‘Silly Season Has Started’ ‘I Don’t Believe It’ – Fans On Twitter React To Reports That West Ham Are After Ligue One Boss

Lyon manager Bruno Genesio is said to be a target for both West Ham and Newcastle, according to RMC Sport.

The French radio station believe the two English clubs are keeping tabs on Genesio’s contract negotiations with his current deal expiring in the summer.

Fans on Twitter don’t think the Hammers will be replacing Manuel Pellegrini at the end of the season:

Pellegrini’s first season has been inconsistent, to say the least, with some very good performances against the top six mixed in with some abject displays against teams lower down the table.

Owners David Gold and David Sullivan are unlikely to dispense with their manager after just one campaign. Whether Genesio would be a candidate even if they were to sack Pellegrini, it remains to be seen.

The Frenchman has finished second, fourth and third in his first three seasons in charge at Lyon, and is on course to finish third again this campaign.
